Meltano Permissions is now Permifrost

As Meltano continues to iterate towards product-market fit, we decided to remove a part of the codebase that no longer fit our target persona. Meltano previously had a command line tool for managing permissions on a Snowflake data warehouse. This is now a separate Python package managed by the GitLab Data Team: Permifrost.

As a separate package, Permifrost is now installable via pip. It is currently on version 0.1.0 and will continue to be regularly updated and improved as the GitLab Data Team continues to use it.

It is fully open-sourced under an MIT license and we hope the Snowflake community will use and contribute to it. Issues can be made in the main Permifrost project.
